Popular sovereignty is the authority that we – the people – have to ensure that our interests and needs are being considered by elected officials when they make decisions that affect our everyday lives. It gives us a seat at the table with these decision makers to make our case and inform them as to how a particular bill or course of action would positively or negatively affect our community. Without popular sovereignty, the government would not truly be ours and it would be even more difficult, if not almost impossible, to advocate for our community if our interests in no way align or benefit those in power.
